  • Fermentation begins spontaneously after 24 hours!
  • No added yeasts!
  • No added sulfur!

Yeeehaaa! It couldn’t have been easier than simply sourcing healthy grapes that have been grown in an organic manner, hand harvested/selected and crushed. The rest we left up to mother nature! Simple! Pump up the volume and click the “Fermenting Nebbiolo Sounds”  below and hear for yourself!

      Thanks Amy!

      We were all quite happy when fermentation began. We had spoken to quite a few respected wine makers who suggested that a bit of sulfur would be a good idea at the beginning. It was nice to not use any.
